(MARYVILLE, Mo.) Northwest Missouri State University is postponing its winter commencement ceremonies out of an abundance of caution for its community and others during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

Northwest’s winter commencement ceremonies were scheduled for Nov. 20-22 at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

Graduating students will receive additional information, via their Northwest email, and have the option to participate in the University’s spring commencement ceremonies, currently scheduled for May 7-8, 2021.

Fall semester classes at Northwest will meet in person for the last time Tuesday, Nov. 24, before Northwest dismisses for Thanksgiving break. The week after the Thanksgiving break, Nov. 30 to Dec. 4, will be a preparation week for students, and all final exams will be online during the scheduled final exam week, Dec. 7-11. Exceptions to the schedule include evening classes and classes with resource-intensive instructional environments, which may use the preparation week for final assessment.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
